American Solar Challenge
Diversified manufacturer Eaton Corp. announced that it has provided $8,000 to Western Michigan University in support of three student engineering teams.
Despite being challenged by extreme weather conditions along the way, the University of Michigan Solar Car Team has won the 2012 American Solar Challenge with their car Quantum for a fourth consecutive American title. Western Michigan Univeristy finished eighth.
So far so good for the University of Michigan’s solar car team in this year’s American Solar Challenge.
Across eight states in eight days, the nation’s winningest solar car team from the University of Michigan will defend its title next month in the American Solar Challenge that includes an overnight stop in its hometown.
